On Wednesday, February 6, the California Coastal Commission (CCC) will hear the application for the Foothill-South toll road that will run directly through California's 5th most popular state park. Both president Reagan and Nixon, played significant roles in establishing San Onofre State Beach Park and now it's in danger of having a toll road run directly through it!! This would set a dangerous precedent for YOUR State park system.
This project threatens precious coastal open space, water quality, and the surf break at Trestles. This is a once in a life time chance to be part of such a HUGE meeting. *** We need an enormous crowd to attend *** Visit sdfair.com/index.php?fuseaction=maps.home for more directions.
